Jane Austen's Journeys

by Hazel Jones

Preface by Maggie Lane. In spite of difficulties we would cry about, travel was all the rage in Britain during Austen's lifetime. People hopped into carriages at a whim, or after well-laid out travel plans, and visited watering holes, famous houses, the City, and scenic wonders. Jones examines this zest for travel, diving into journals, letters, and other first-hand accounts to take us right into that world. Robert Hale Ltd., London. 2014. Hb, Dj. NEW. $26.00
